nRF52833 DKDevelopment kit

Bluetooth LE, Bluetooth mesh, Thread and Zigbee development kit for the nRF52833 SoC

The nRF52833 DK is an affordable single-board development kit for development of Bluetooth® Low Energy, Bluetooth mesh, Thread and Zigbee applications on the nRF52833 SoC.

The kit is hardware compatible with the Arduino Uno Rev3 standard, making it possible to a wide range of 3rd-party shields that are compatible with this standard, including the Power Profiler Kit from Nordic Semiconductor.

An included NFC antenna can be connected the kit to use the on-chip NFC-A tag functionality. The kit allows access to all I/O and interfaces via connectors and has 4 LEDs and 4 buttons which are user-programmable.

The DK can be powered via USB, but also supports Li-Po and CR2032 coin-cell batteries, which enables in-field testing of prototypes.

And on-board SEGGER J-link debugger allows programming and debugging both the on-board SoC and external SoCs through the debug out header.

The DK is supported by an SDK for firmware development and a range of PC tools (IDEs and Toolchains) to develop end to end applications.

Hardware layout and schematics are available.

Connect and test

the nRF52833 DK

  1. What's included with the kit: The nRF52833 DK board itself, and a flex NFC antenna.
  2. Connect the NFC antenna to the board. The connector is marked "NFC", and located on the edge of the board near the 4 buttons. Use a micro USB 2.0 cable to connect the nRF52833 DK to one of your PC's USB host ports. This provides power to the board, and supports target programming.
  3. Flip the power switch to "on". Find it near the micro USB connector. A popup may appear. Ignore it for now.
  4. Confirm that LED 1 has started pulsating.
  5. Use the buttons SW1 to SW4 to control which LED is pulsating.
